A Mother's Sacrifice
by Timothy Paterson
When a woman gives up a child for adoption, whether she does it out of love, or necessity, she never forgets that child. It will always remain a part of her. Sometimes, she is able to bury the memory deep in their subconscious, but it can still resurface, and cause pain and sadness. This is the story of Beth, a woman who, at the age of thirty-three, discovers that she can never have a child of her own, She and her husband, John decide to adopt a baby. That single event sets off a chain of events, that will involve many people, and bring unresolved feelings to the surface.
